Having had a broken computer and an argument with my wife this weekend no progression was made in LOTRO…

Read this in yesterdays Guardian how Board game and Video Games are feeding off each other, the former is going through a bit of a renaissance:


So my top 10 Board Games (in no order)

Monopoly: We used to play with a house rule where all fines to bank were paid to the free parking square, which created a lovely lottery win effect every so often 🙂

Cluedo: Who did it, where and with what?

Scrabble: Never could beat my Nana or come near to my Grandfather, but loved it!

RISK: now we are talking, this stuck with me for years and years, even played as an adult a few times 🙂

Allies and Axis: grown up RISK, took so long we only ever finished a few games…

Illuminati: Steve Jackson Game: only ever played it properly with 1 friend, was too far out and complex for most!

Escape from Colditz: was a challenge..

Blood Bowl: my teenage mutant ninja turtle RPG group was destroyed due to the much more fun Blood Bowl…combined American Football (was hip in 1988-1989) with Warhammer…LOVED IT!

CHESS: every few years or so I will pick up a chess set and start playing again! Even started reading books about it the last time I was bitten badly by the chess bug…only problem being I will never be more than an AVERAGE player me thinks!

Othello/Reversi: The only game my sister and I would ever play…

Snakes and Ladders: Oh I forgot! The first game my sister and I would play.

Hopefully back to LOTRO blogging soon….

    Yeap, can imagine Lotro board game:
    Grim slayer in Forochel: freeze for 100 turns;
    New Gondor: if any item nearby, spent 2 turns for lag;
    Bree reputation: +1 turn (too quick to get Kindred);
    Moria: spent 10 turns, then get +1 turn (reputation with 2 factions).
    Could be fun…

      If I had more time I may give creating a LOTRO board game a go today…
